WHAT TO DO:

Step 1.

Step 1. Start by following the step by step guide of the Pour and paint blog of the 29th of May. Once your painting is drying, add your glitter. Look at the composition and ask yourself where the glitter would be best suited. Then sprinkle the glitter on. Do not use a glue stick as it will become very patchy. Use the liquid tube glue as you can make precise lines with this as you will see.

Step 2.

Once the whole painting is fully dry (it may look dry but may still be wet under the surface!), start by gently brushing the gold leaf onto the painting.

 

Use a clean and dry paintbrush to apply the gold leaf.
